iOS users expect navigation buttons to exist at the bottom of the screen. Great examples of this include Photos, Music, App Store, etc. Note that if you have too many tabs in the UITabBarController, the last tab will be replaced with a "More" tab that allows the user to see all other tabs that aren't visible in the tab bar. Place your most often used or ...

This is the answer: "can you be more specific about what sites, and what layouts you are referring to?

Staying consistent with menus is a rule of thumb for keeping users happy. In your example, you can simply add a horizontal menu for the 'Recipe' page, giving the user the contextual menu for that particular page. The sidebar should always display the same menus as replacing them loses the entire context and flow of the links and their hierarchy.

As far as I'm concerned, putting single entry points into folders is just annoying. However, if I have multiple program entry points and they can be categorised, I'd put them in folders. But that's just my preference. To be frank: users will put things wherever the f*** they want. I know people who OCD-style categorise everything and would put your entry ...
